Meet the Faculty

The art history minor familiarizes students with the visual culture of societies from prehistory to the present day, strengthening students’ understanding of art and culture through the analysis and interpretation of works of art as primary evidence in relation to historical events, politics, religion, social life, and other art forms. The minor teaches students a variety of scholarly art historical and archaeological methodologies; emphasizes the development of strong critical thinking, writing, and presentation skills; and promotes visual literacy and interdisciplinary study of a diverse array of sociopolitical and theoretical issues. The minor also supports and adds valuable knowledge and skills to majors such as studio art, history, philosophy, critical media and cultural studies, English, modern languages, and classical studies, and anthropology.
